Need a Quick Quilt?

Are you looking to make a quilt quickly but don't want it to look too simple? Want it to be easy too? Well Bunny & I have re-discovered the Strip Tube Ruler and Book. The quilt top takes about 2 days from cutting to finish (depending on how many coffee breaks you take and how early/late you get started. If you are anything like me, finding the fabric for the quilt will take longer than that. :) I carry bolts of fabric around the quilt store and put them back several times before I find the perfect combo! The book comes with 5 patterns (13 designs in all). You will sew strips together, make a tube, cut the tube using the ruler then, Ta Da!, the blocks are all the same size and already square, ready to assemble. The design varies based on how you layout the blocks. Interested? A "how to" video is worth a thousand words. Here is the link:

Shameless promotion, we have the ruler, book & additional patterns in our Etsy shop. :) Below are pictures of some of the designs in the book. Pic #1 is the one we put together yesterday.
